I've got some really fresh shn's i'm trying to upload using smart ftp. I have dsl and can only get an upload rate of around 18kbs. With a 3 disk show, this would take forever and a year. For all of the uploaders...is this a normal rate?

I max out at 25 KB/s using SBC DSL. Most DSL providers severely limit our outgoing bandwidth.

upload speed usually depends on your ISP. There often is descrepencies between what a company promises as an upload speed and what happens in real life. I seem to remember my ISP (Cox San Diego, Cable Modem) promises from their website "Up to 4 Mb downstream / 384 Kbps upstream speed" where in reality I have seen at a max 38 Kbps, and more frequently in the 33 Kbps range.

It won't take forever and a day, it will only take a day at most, just set it to start uploading before going to bed, and by dinner the next day it will for sure be uploaded. Plus just think... when it is uploaded and public, the speeds people will get in download will be amazingly fast (200-300Kbps) and will be available for the public for free for decades to come.

Hope your upload speeds pick up! talk to your ISP. they may just give you the runaround of the fine print "actual speeds may vary" bull shit.

Thanks for contributing to the archive!

I max out at 38 up on comcast cable.

Seems to be the cap they all set.

Just keep in mind that 384 Kbps (kilo-bits per second) translates to 48 KBps (kilo-bytes per second).

ISP's will often advertise their bandwidth in kilo-BITS per second to make them seem faster. When all of our upload/download speeds are usually measured in kilo-BYTES per second. (8 bits = 1 byte) so just divide the bits per second by 8.

If you get over 30KBps in upload, you are pretty lucky. Alot of ISP's only allow around 15KBps.
